Tech Ends Big Day with 4-Star WR

Georgia Tech has plucked a big-time recruit away from one of its former coaches today. Miller Grove High School star wide receiver Stephen Hill has made it his final decision to play for Coach Paul Johnson and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets instead of Coach George O'Leary's Central Florida Golden Knights. The athletic, 4-star prospect shared what happened today as he changed his mind:

Stephen Hill - Profile

"I just called my recruiting coach at Central Florida, Coach Kelly, and told him that I was de-committing. Then I called Coach BJ (Brian Jean-Mary) at Tech and talked everything over with him and Coach Johnson. I told them that's where I want to be, and that's how it is now. They just said congrats to my family and stuff. They now just want to get everything down pat with academics."

The excitement in Stephen's voice speaks for himself as he is elated to be part of the Georgia Tech family.

"It really is [a relief] that it's over. I was enjoying the process, but it's over. I'm now focusing on trying to get my team to the playoffs. Friday we play Chamblee in a real big game to see who goes to the playoffs."

He said that he is completely solid to Tech and that he will not be talking to anymore schools recruiting him, except to tell them he is done.

"Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and a lot more schools were really coming on and recruiting me hard. I'm going to tell them [I'm done] before the end of the week."

Hill has recently committed to play in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl. He is excited to join his future teammate QB Jordan Luallen in playing in this all-star game together. He will also be making his official visit (his last as he noted) to Georgia Tech on December 12th when many of Tech's commits and recruits will be there.

Georgia Tech is adding another play-maker to its fold. Hill possesses all the intangibles to be a threat on the field, even in Coach Johnson's run-heavy spread offense. Top Stories
